Consider A Good Set Of Drapes
Preparing for your holiday festivities can mean more valuable items coming into your home. Whether they be for decoration, gifts or anything else you need for planning your get-togethers if those valuable items can be seen from a ground floor or other accessible window in your home, would-be burglars can simply do some window shopping and wait for the right time to strike.
If you simply can’t or don’t want to consider drapes for particular rooms, be sure to keep your valuable objects in rooms that are more difficult — or impossible — to see from around your home’s exterior.
